Many initial concerns have resolved themselves as the clutch breaks in. Since you are concerned, I suggest visiting the dealer so they can inspect it and ease your worries. You are also welcome to contact Ford of Canada Customer Relationship Centre at 1.800.565.3673 and discuss your issues.

Hey Ponderer,

What did your dealer advise? PM me and let me know, and send your info (VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state) so I can help.

@centflfocus & cardoc1,

The PowerShift transmission has an adaptive learning process that enables it to smooth out as it adjusts to individual driving habits. Shifting is electronically controlled, so it has different sensations than a basic transmission. Rest assured, I am here to help with the few experiencing lingering issues, and the Focus is an excellent decision for your next vehicle.
